I have this incredibly long recovery going on right now and can’t tell if I have the RC or latest update. If I interrupt it now, I am afraid I’ll have to start again. Any advice JR?January 28, 2011 at 3:08 pm #4667
Don’t interrupt it. Keep it going, let me know what the results are. Data recovery doesn’t guarantee anything ever. It’s a great success when we can recovery what we were searching for.January 29, 2011 at 7:31 pm #4669
I tried for 5+ days, but I needed my laptop, so I had to interrupt it. The disk hasn’t been touched in read/write way since I lost my data and I am recovering to a different disk, so hopefully I can restart when the RC is released.January 31, 2011 at 4:51 am #4671
Check your mailbox, I just sent you an email.February 17, 2011 at 1:32 pm #4680
Just to add to the time frame discussion: I’m just over 12 hrs in to a deep scan of a 500 GB external drive, connected via firewire 400. Currently 0.58% complete with estimated 2135 hrs to go. This seems long, but if it works it’s worth it.
For context, I think drive failure was due either to corruption by improper device removal or updates to system software with ensuing issues. I’m using an older Western Digital drive, and I recently updated to Mac OS 10.5.8 from 10.4.11 (finally) and then the issues began with a drive than had hitherto been problem free.February 17, 2011 at 2:56 pm #4681July 21, 2011 at 8:04 pm #4749
I have an estimated time to a deep scan of 580h, in 1h30 it scanned 0.19%. I really want to go on but I have one question, the volume of the drive (WD) I’m trying to fix shows 2TB but this does not match the real size of the original drive which was 160GB , have you ever seen this before?July 23, 2011 at 6:02 am #4750
